A portion of Highway 275 in Neligh will be closed to traffic on Sunday, June 22 during the controlled burn of three buildings, according to Neligh's Assistant Fire Chief Dave Jacobsen.
Highway 275 will be closed from 6 a.m. until approximately 4 p.m. on Sunday, from 3rd Street to 5th Street. Traffic will be rerouted around Neligh on Wylie Drive.
"There will also be other side street closures in the downtown area for water supply," Jacobsen said. "We ask that the public do not enter the closed areas around the burn site."
The controlled burn is expected to begin at 7 a.m. with several area fire departments assisting.
"We are burning down the Neligh Locker, old Helmer’s Furniture building and the two-story structure to the south of the Helmer’s building," he said.
